Matt Leinart and the Trojans continue to roll and rolled over the Cougars on Saturday. Matt was taken out in the 3rd quarter and let the backups take over. He had a great day passing, hooking up with Steve Smith twice and Dwayne Jarrett once.

The Longhorns were caught in a little barbed-wire on Saturday versus the Cowboys. Down by 19 points in the 1st quarter, Texas turned to its best Superman impersonator, Vince Young. Young set a school record for total offense in a game and scored 2 running and 2 throwing. Reggie Bush and Vince Young appear deadlocked in a race for the Heisman Trophy.

Bret Myer, the QB for Iowa State, did his best Reggie McNeal impersonation as the Cyclones shredded the Aggies pass defense. For the real McNeal it was a good day passing, but a day that found little or no running room for the All-American QB. The Cyclones boast the #20 run defense in the league and they did a good job shutting down the Aggie run game.

Brad Smith usually has a bad game against the Jayhawks. Kansas has relatively contained Smith for the last 3 seasons. After a monster game versus the Bugeaters last week, Smith came back down to earth and was intercepted late in the game to seal the Jayhawks 13-3 win. Brad needs only 5 more rushing yards this season to become the all time leader in yards rushing by a quarterback.

Reggie Bush was held out of the endzone for only the second time this year. It didn't matter because the Trojans still dominated and most starters did not play in the 4th quarter. USC is so good that when Bush fumbled near the goalline in the 1st quarter offensive tackle Winston Justice dove on it for the touchdown.

White bounced back after a couple of subpar weeks with a strong showing against Washington State. LenDale currently shares the team lead for most TDs this season (13) with receiver Dwayne Jarrett. He had touchdown runs of 2 & 21 yards on Saturday.

The Gophers totaled 578 yards of offense against the Big 10's leading defense, but in the end it wasn't enough to upset the 12th ranked Buckeyes. Maroney had a big first half rushing for 114 yards and a score. In the 2nd half Laurence was held in check, and fumbled once.

Number 10 Florida State held on in a close game versus the terrible terrapins. On the Seminoles first offensive series Washington scored on a 3-yard run. FSU wasted their fast start and were booed at the end of the half. To get back into the game the Seminoles turned to their best offensive weapon, WR freshmen sensation Greg Carr.

Twenty 4th quarter points did the trick for the Sun Devils as they crushed the Huskies with a late surge. Hagan had a good game, providing freshmen QB Rudy Carpenter with a reliable target. Carpenter was sacked 7 times, but was able to find Hagan early and often. Hagan now moves into 3rd place all time in the Pac-10 for career receptions (236).

Texas Tech skunked Baylor 28-0 and moved their record to 7-1. Their crazy aerial attack was grounded for most of the game and QB Cory Hodges did not play a good game. Hicks was a key ingredient for moving the ball down the field for the Red Raiders. He gained 80 of his 115 yards in the 4th quarter.

Arizona held on for their 2nd win of the season versus Oregon State. The nation's leading receiver was held scoreless, but still had a ton of yards. Hass leads the NCAA with 154.6 yards per game, and is 2nd with an average of 8.6 receptions per game. With this performance he surpassed James Newson as Oregon State's all-time leader in receiving yards.

Steve Smith only had 3 catches, but 2 of them went for touchdowns on Saturday. Smith has been getting double covered and sophomore sensation Dwayne Jarrett has been getting all the stats. Well, Steve was back in the endzone again this week, for the 2nd week in a row, after a 5 game stretch where he didn't score at all.
